Burnley vs Manchester United predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Premier League fixture

Manchester United will be hoping to work their way up the table when they take on Burnley this evening.

After a 2-0 defeat by Watford stripped the side of their momentum, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are now attempting to rediscover the sort of form that saw them beat both Tottenham and Man City in back-to-back matches earlier this month.

United beat Newcastle 4-1 in their last outing, and will fancy their chances today against a team that has succumbed to four losses in their last six games.


Burnley may be 12th in the league but are in need of an encouraging run of results to lift spirits at Turf Moor.

Here’s what you need to know for tonight’s match:

When is it?

Burnley vs United kicks off at 7.45pm on Saturday 28 December.

Where can I watch it?

BT Sport 1 will be broadcasting the match, with coverage starting at 7.00pm. Alternatively, subscribers can stream the clash via the BT Sport app on your smartphone, laptop or tablet.

Predicted line-ups

Burnley XI: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Hendrick, Drinkwater, Westwood, Gudmundsson; Barnes, Wood.

Manchester United XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, Pogba; James, Lingard, Rashford; Martial​.

Prediction

Burnley have had an indifferent season so far, having notched up more defeats than victories. Their form against the so-called ‘top six’ leaves plenty to be desired, too. United, on the other hand, are infuriatingly consistent – and it’s hard to know which side will turn up at Turf Moor. If the visitors are on form, though, this is a clash they should dominate.

Burnley 0-2 Manchester United

Burnley: 29/10
